Test Drive: Eve Of Destruction On Xbox

BEVERLY, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- June 15, 2004 Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR) announces that the latest iteration in its Test Drive(R) racing franchise, Test Drive(R): Eve of Destruction will be released this fall on the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft, in addition to the previously announced version of the game which will be available for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system in September. Developed by Monster Games, Test Drive(R): Eve of Destruction captures the raw, unfettered thrill of no-rules competition and is based on real-life extreme racing events. "We are thrilled to bring Test Drive(R): Eve of Destruction, the sequel to 2002's Platinum Hits Test Drive(R) to Xbox fans this Fall," said Nancy MacIntyre, Vice President of Marketing for Atari's Beverly Studios. "Monster Games has reinvigorated the Test Drive franchise with this fresh departure from static road-course racing without losing touch with the core elements that have made Test Drive one of the most recognized and successful racing franchises in video game history." Test Drive(R): Eve of Destruction is the first Test Drive game to feature: vehicle damage, dirt tracks, crazy events and unorthodox vehicles like school buses, taxis and hearses. Since its debut in 1987, the Test Drive series has sold through more than $137 million worth of product on console and PC. Test Drive(R): Eve of Destruction blends the best elements of racing and demolition and is packed with 25 different events, including Demo Derby, where the last car standing wins; Gauntlet, where the player climbs behind the wheel of a hearse and tries to finish a set number of laps while the rest of the field attempts to stop him; Trailer Race, a new brand of racing event, where the player competes while towing various types of trailers and must finish the race with something resembling a trailer still attached. Additionally, Test Drive(R): Eve of Destruction offers players a selection of more than 30 nontraditional, custom vehicles, an in-game track announcer and a split-screen multiplayer mode for up to four players.
